Stop Overwhelm in Its Tracks—Get Calm and Think Clearly so You Can Be More…

June 29, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Stop Overwhelm in Its Tracks—Get Calm and Think Clearly so You Can Be More Productive

Through stories, group discussion, and proven, practical techniques, the training is designed to slow down employees’ hectic pace so they can be even stronger leaders (with or without titles), feel calmer, and more productive. They will be able to identify the signs of overwhelm in themselves and others so they can address it sooner; what to do about it when they notice it; learn what overwhelm is and its surprising and significant impacts; a three-step, 30-second system to get present; the step-by-step formula to get out of overwhelm quickly; and the key to prioritizing their workload when everything feels important. They’ll also hear stories that illustrate how working extra hours is a choice and that taking on their direct reports’ workload to protect them from being overwhelmed is a recipe for burnout, among others.

This presentation integrates group discussion with a lecture-style presentation and provides employees with specific knowledge and tools as described in the objective and learning outcomes above. Time to practice the exercises, complete worksheets, and participate in group and individual brainstorming. This allows for deeper learning and increased likelihood that employees will implement the techniques following the workshop. Employees will also walk away with completed worksheets and a one-page printout that they can post in their workspace.
